Heeellooo! 2012

As 2011 comes to a close, I took some time to reflect on my year. It was a fun-filled year with many blessings. I am grateful to God for all that He’s blessed my family with. I’ve listed a few of the highlights from my year:
  • I am most proud of becoming who God created me to be.  I am an artist. In 2011, I fully accepted the talents God has given me and am moving towards living a life that reflects that.  Thank. You. Lord.
  • Spending Christmas and New Year with my mother and my husband in Berlin, Germany. (Granted Christmas did occur in 2010, I tend to look at holidays as one big blob of good times) I also got the chance to visit with my uncle and meet my cousin for the very first time.
  • Telling my mother she was going to be a grandmother!
  • Giving birth to my wonderful little boy Micah James!
  • I also did a few more successful shows this year for Juicy Christians.

Is that all? Well of course not… But, I don’t remember every single blessing because I didn’t write them down like I'd planned on doing at the beginning of 2011. So, this leads me to 2012. I have a few goals that I’d like to accomplish in the New Year and I figured that since I am terrible at holding myself accountable (where’s the fun in that?), I would count on you to hold me accountable. So, I am going to list my goals here in hopes that knowing you are watching will give me a good ‘ol kick in the tush to get moving!  Thank you in advance!

 For 2012, I decided to focus on twelve goals.  While each goal will happen over the course of the year, I liked the idea of having a concrete number to work towards.  So without further ado, here are my goals.
  • Land at least ten new wholesale accounts.
  • Advertise/Promote Juicy Christians in ten different locations.
  • Develop a plan for organizing workshop and decorate studio. 
  • Update the blog three times a week.
  • Participate in at least two shows per month. 
  • Develop current jewelry collections.
  • Add three new products to Juicy Christians collection.
  • Do a photo shoot to showcase Juicy Christians jewelry line.
  • Connect more with customers and other creative people.
  • Develop Juicy Christians brand.
  • Develop a system for capturing my ideas.
  • Create a piece of jewelry to support women business owners in third world countries.
I fully expect to be successful in all of my endeavors in 2012.  Of course, I will update you all along the way so don't fret.  I thank you for your support in 2011 and am looking foward to sharing 2012 with you!

God Bless,
